How to Remember

Listen in pop-out player

Sam Edwards argues that we should think again about how and what we memorialise - including wars and other major events in our national history.

Sam is a lecturer in American History at Manchester Metropolitan University, and has long been fascinated with memorials. He tells the story of how, as a young man, he would journey around the Suffolk countryside visiting the many memorials to the US 8th Air Force, and the effect it had on him.

Producer: Giles Edwards.
